O'Leary Announces Blogs Birthday

Three years ago I began this little bit o' blog. Over the course of the last three years I have met so many kind people and have found a hobby that means the world to me.

My Kitty Fang. Isn't she gorgeous.

It was to be over three months before I received my first comment and it was to be several more months before I got my second comment. Undaunted I continued to post the most inane things hoping someone out there would notice me. Eventually they did.

I saw a widget over at Loki's Great Hall that listed his top commenters and as it is my blog birthday I was curious to see how mine would look.  It is up in my right sidebar.  I would like to say something special to those top three people.

Dez-You are my ray of sunshine on my cloudy days.

Pat-Feck off you Arse Licking Cat.

Ray-Who knew that the man I've insulted the most had so much to say to me. Thanks ya little Weasel!

Further I'd like to say Thanks to all of you who have tolerated my shenanigans over the last three years. You most certainly have made my world a better place.

  1. Congratulations on the blog-day!

    It really is a great community isn't? (Even if there are the oddest little feckers around...)

    1. Thank you Clint! I'm a pretty low maintenance blog to follow as I don't post much. So getting to me is fairly easy for most people.

    1. The Cat and I have traded insults from the beginning and we've hung together for most of these three years. I'm always telling him to feck off. If I was nice, he'd think I didn't care!

  13. Happy Blog Birthday - May your something's always rise, your something-else's always set before dawn and your thingamabobs never do that thing they sometimes do when you don't want them to!

  14. You is my sunshine too, dahlink, happy bloggybirthday! We shall celebrate at the Shenanigans Pub with a cake. I'm putting whiskey in the icing....
    Is that really Fang? She looks so dangerous and ominous, dear, perfect guardian of the garden :) She could eat my tomcat Ignatius for breakfast :)

    1. Ya, that's my Princess. She is still quite wild as she came to me nearly feral. Poor little thing only ate what she could catch and didn't know human love. Moi fattened her up in short order by feeding her fresh fishies. She doesn't fight with other kitties and she shares her territory with a kitty named George.

      She is the fourth kitty that has come to me that looks exactly like her. For over 30 years when one passes, another one shows up at my door a few months later. I think she is my guardian spirit that just comes back over and over.

    2. I do believe there are spiritual things going around cats and some other animals, dear. I had it happen many times that when a cat of mine, who loved to cuddle and be petted, dies or disappears, her brother or sister, who were cold and wild before that, would the very same day start asking to be petted and cuddled. It is as if the spirit of the dead one gets into the still alive one.

  15. WHAT!?! I don't even rank in the top 10? I smell shenanigans. Due to the content I provide alone, I should rank higher than 10. Oh, wait, this isn't supposed to be a forum for my self-aggrandizement, I'm supposed to congratulate you on blogging. Happy anniversary.

    1. Many of the people who visit my blog come back and banter on each post. We talk back and forth, hence the high counts from them.

  16. Poor Ray is third and with such a big mouth is only like 1/3 caught up to me, geez, that picture of his must be all fiction lmao

    Happy Bog Birthday indeed, Fang looks to be giving you a wtf look hahaha where did you get that widget anyway, be neat to sea with all of those at my bay.

    2. Ray was a surprise to me. But I've been with Ray longer than you and he kidded around a bit on quite a few posts.

      Kitty Fang always looks like that. Her appears evil, but to me she is sweet and kind. Not so much to anyone else.

      I got the widget by Googling Top Commentators. There's a HUGE html code you copy and paste into your HTML gadget and poof, it shows up.

      Delete
    3. Tried to make it poof, but never worked for me. Might conflict with something else I have at my sea
